Residents of the rural community Mrgashat in Armavir marz are ready to block the Yerevan-Armavir highway if water supply to the village does not resume by tomorrowafternoon, several disgruntled village residents informed Epress.am today.
Speaking to the Epress.am correspondent, village resident and Council of Elders member Tatul Soghomonyan said it's been 15 days that the water has been cut off in his village.
"It's been 5 days since we planted the grains given by the government and they have received not a single drop of water; if you don't water them, the entire crop goes to the crows," he said.
Soghomonyan claims that Jrar, the company that supplies water to Armavir marz, responding to the residents' request for explanation, said that water is distributed for three days at a time to the province's different communities and it just isn't their turn yet.
"Five 3-days have already passed; we are waiting. Today I was forced to call the government hotline and warn them that we're taking drastic measures. They said they will respond at the end of the meeting, then they said we'll have water by 12 pm tomorrow. We've waited this long; we'll manage one more day. If it turns out to be a lie, we know what we're going to do," he concluded.
